continue to receive tax credits to help raise their kids and send them to college. companies will continue to receive tax credits for the research they do, the investments they make and the clean energy jobs they create. 2 million americans are out of work with, but out there looking and pounding the pavement every day will continue to receive unemployment benefits as long as they're actively looking for a job. i'm very open to compromise. i agree with democrats and republicans that the aging population and the rising cost of health care makes medicare the biggest contributor to our deficit. i believe we have to find ways to reform that program without hurting seniors who count on it to survive. and i believe that there's further unnecessary spending in government that we can eliminate. but we can't simply cut our way to prosperity. i will not have another debate
2:03 am
with this congress over whether or not they should pay the bills that they have already wracked up through the laws they passed. let me repeat. we can't not pay bills that we've already incurred. if congress refuses to give the united states government time to pay these bills on time, the result will be catastrophic. hopefully we will focus on seeing if we can put a package like this together with a little bit less drama, a little less brinksmanship, not scare the heck out of folks quite as much. >> the president doesn't want to scare us quite as much. nbc's tracie potts is on capitol hill. that was a new year's day to remember. >> it was. it was just in time for many americans who were concerned for tax rates going up.
